Economic Brief, October 2018, No. 18-10 - Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond
Inequality in the United States has an important spatial component. More-skilled workers tend to live in larger cities where they earn higher wages. Less-skilled workers make lower wages and do not experience similar gains even when they live in those cities. This dynamic implies that larger cities are also more unequal. These relationships appear to have become more pronounced as inequality has increased. The evidence points to externalities among high-skilled workers as a significant contributor to those patterns.

Cities are not the future – Sakunthala – Medium
One of the big trends of the last 10 years was the rise of cities — knowledge workers especially relocated to urban centers, and the sharing of ideas that came from that made cities much richer than they were before. It’s become conventional wisdom that the future contains more of the same. However, I’ve started to think this trend may have run it’s course, and may even be reversing.

Africa is urbanising without globalising - CapX
This is Africa’s third biggest city. At 12 million, its population is bigger than London’s. Yet it has almost no connections to the outside world. On normal days, there are only 11 international flights out of Kinshasa per day. At Heathrow, the figure is around 1,400. Apart from the airport, the only other way into this vast megacity is the rickety ferry from neighbouring Congo-Brazzaville. If you were extremely brave, you could try the road to the Atlantic Ocean. But that’s about it. Kinshasa can burn and most of the world doesn’t notice, because Kinshasa is only slightly better connected to the global economy than the North Pole.

And yet somehow it is one of the world’s fastest growing cities. Kinshasa is a particularly extreme example of how Africa is urbanising without globalising. Sixty years ago the whole of sub-Saharan Africa had no cities with a population of more than a million people. Now it has dozens.

The Third Transportation Revolution – Medium
Or look at San Francisco, where the historic Ferry Building was blocked for decades by a two-level freeway. Since locals couldn’t really get there, it became a rarely-visited office building. But when the road was damaged by an earthquake in 1989, the city saw an opportunity. Instead of rebuilding the space for cars, it tore down the highway and reimagined the area as a place where people could gather. Shops, restaurants, and cafes were built, and before long the Ferry Building became the focal point of the San Francisco waterfront. Every weekend, almost 25,000 people visit its farmers market and support local vendors. As a result, new neighborhoods emerged, and within five years, there was 51% more housing available in the surrounding area.

Don’t blame Airbnb for ruining your secret getaway | Fusion
Overall, the increase in travel is a good thing, as is the way in which it is increasingly expanding from a limited menu of clunky old institutions like mega-resorts and flea-bag motels. But as the demand for unique and memorable experiences continues to rise, the kind of locations which tend to form the backdrop to such experiences are only going to see more out-of-towners passing through for a few days. Rents and home prices in those places are going to rise, and people who used to be able to afford to live there will increasingly be priced out.

Why Most Cities Will Never Be All They Used to Be | Newgeography.com
Three points I was unable to expand on in the Forbes piece.  First, now that the pendulum is swinging back in favor of cities, their influence is ascending faster than their population growth.  Cities are leading discussions now the economy, on infrastructure, on energy, on housing.  For the latter third of the 20th century the suburbs led that discussion.  But today, cities have reclaimed that role.  Their actual size, in terms of population, matters less today than it did 60 years ago.  

Second, the American preference for new over old has nearly as much to do with this shift as shrinking household size.  For nearly 50 years the suburbs (and by extension, the Sun Belt) was new, and that was a main feature of their attraction.  But there's also that saying, "everything old is new again."  Cities are the new thing, and while they're not everyone's cup of tea, they are doing better than at any time in the last 50 years.

Third, it's conceivable that many suburbs and/or Sun Belt cities may find themselves impacted by emerging demographic or social shifts.  Having a huge inventory of single family homes in a world that is asking for multifamily options?  A strong auto-oriented landscape when more people are looking for walkable environments?

Why Corporate America Is Leaving the Suburbs for the City - The New York Times
For decades, many of the nation’s biggest companies staked their futures far from the fraying downtowns of aging East Coast and Midwestern cities. One after another, they decamped for sprawling campuses in the suburbs and exurbs.

Now, corporate America is moving in the other direction.

In June, McDonald’s joined a long list of companies that are returning to downtown Chicago from suburbs like Oak Brook, Northfield and Schaumburg.

Councils not on track for smart city delivery
New research, commissioned by street lighting experts Lucy Zodion and conducted by independent research agency, DJS Research, has highlighted the risk that many local governments are lacking the budget, leadership and capability to progress smart initiatives and connected technology in cities across the UK.


The research reveals that smart cities are not deemed a strategic priority for the majority of councils in the UK, and identifies barriers to delivery that are stifling progress in many local authorities. Without a clear roadmap to delivery from Government and a coherent, cost-effective approach, the UK risks lagging behind other countries with an inconsistent and delayed roll-out of smart cities.

187 councils from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland were contacted as part of the research. A significant gap was identified between those councils leading the way on smart cities and those not yet engaged: over 80% had little to no involvement with smart cities and few had named smart city leads or teams managing smart implementation. The findings indicate that the UK risks a three-tiered approach to smart cities delivery, with those early-adopters who have secured funding striving ahead, leaving those without resources unable to make progress, and many more still yet to grasp the potential benefits available.

Best World Cities for Traffic: Dallas-Fort Worth, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Richmond | Newgeography.com
The 2015 Tom Tom Traffic Index shows that Dallas-Fort Worth has the least overall congestion among world (urban areas) with more than 5,000,000 population. The Tom Tom Traffic Index for Dallas-Fort Worth is 17, which means that, on average, it takes 17 percent longer to travel in the urban area because of traffic congestion.

The Tom Tom Traffic Index rates traffic congestion in nearly 300 world cities. This article examines overall traffic congestion levels in two categories of cities, those with more than 5,000,000 population and those with between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 population.

Connectivity is Destiny | RSA Replay | Parag Khanna - YouTube
It is time to reimagine how life is organized on Earth. We're accelerating into a future shaped less by countries and more by mega-cities; less by borders and more by connectivity. A world in which the most connected powers, and people, will win. Leading strategist Parag Khanna shows how the global connectivity revolution - in transport, infrastructure, communications - has upended the ‘geography is destiny’ mantra, and how connectivity, not sovereignty, has become the organizing principle of 21st century society.

The World's 'Most Liveable City' Rankings Analayzed | Highsnobiety
Evidently, you can’t rank something as subjective as liveability without rubbing a lot of people the wrong way. Mercer’s list is clearly an imperfect yardstick (as is Monocle’s), but it does serve a unique purpose: the skylines of global metropolises like New York, London, Paris, and the like, loom large in our collective consciousness. Through popular culture, these are cities that are often held up as measures of ‘greatness,’ reputations that its residents are often so keen to propagate. Again, greatness is subjective, but a system as unsentimental and calculated as Mercer’s makes you wonder how much of this is just pop cultural mythology.

Why Connecticut Lost GE by Aaron M. Renn, City Journal January 14, 2016
Globalization drove demand for new types of business services, reinforcing the need to stay on top of a constantly shifting landscape. People with advanced, specialized knowledge are the ones who help companies innovate now. These employees work in highly interactive ways that benefit from clustering together—disproportionately in urban areas like New York, Chicago, and Boston.

Big cities have become increasingly desirable to the young. The children of those who fled to suburbs to escape urban decline have embraced city living. Unlike the Baby Boomers, who were raised in an era when cities were getting worse and worse, the Millennials came of age as cities were being reborn. This produced a completely different psychology. With a larger segment of the next-generation workforce located in urban areas—and often not owning cars—many companies have had to open downtown offices again or relocate entirely to attract the talent they need.

As a result, the urban cores of New York City and Chicago have hit record employment levels. Companies like Google that didn’t even exist in the bad old days of the seventies and eighties now employ thousands of people in downtown environments.

Ban Cars
If you don’t think that one car will make a difference, consider this. Right now, about three percent of all trips globally are taken by bike. A big study by UC Davis and the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy says that reducing car use enough to double that figure to six percent by 2050 could make a game-changing impact. Cities would save $24 trillion and the planet would reduce CO2 emissions by nearly 11 percent. That’s enough to prevent the increase in transportation-related emissions that the UN predicts. And the world would be happier and healthier for it.

2015 UK attractiveness survey - EY - United Kingdom
Another strong year: the UK pulls away from the pack...

Once again, the UK turned in an outstanding performance in attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in 2014. The numbers speak for themselves: a record number of 887 projects, up 11% on 2013; increased European market share; and a market-leading 31,198 jobs created.

The UK’s success was broad-based. Despite a second year of decline in business services projects across Europe, the UK grew its software and financial services sector projects, captured 35% of all European headquarter (HQ) moves and led Europe on R&D projects. The UK achieved a leading market share of 29% of US projects in Europe and was the main destination for investment in Europe from France, Japan, Australia, Canada, India and Ireland.

The UK secured 164 manufacturing projects in 2014, beating the 131 projects secured by Germany. This was based on strong growth in the automotive, food, and machinery and equipment sectors, We have become used to being told that the UK cannot compete in manufacturing, but the results suggest that there is untapped potential and more attention should be given to the “makers.”

EY’s attractiveness survey: Europe 2015 Comeback time
FDI inflows into Europe rose by 36% in 2014, the biggest increase among major regions. This year, investors have ranked Western Europe (50%) as the world’s most attractive FDI destination for the second year running.

The global uptick in M&A was mirrored in Europe, where companies began a wave of consolidation in financial services, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and communications. The weakening of the euro, which has accelerated since year-end, has made many Continental European assets or investment projects more affordable, especially for those paying in dollars, pounds or Swiss francs.

But investors may also have reacted to the first signs of a long-overdue and multispeed European economic recovery that has since been confirmed, which is encouraging a rising wave of business investment across the region. In the final quarter of 2014, a sharp fall in energy prices also bolstered Europe’s attractiveness and stimulated its nascent economic recovery.

Where is the world's most polluted city? | Cities | The Guardian
UN organisation cannot compare or rank cities because many do not have the resources or political will to set up a monitoring system. Gary Fuller, an air pollution expert at Kings College, said continent-sized blank spots made it impossible to know where people were suffering the most.

“When we compare air pollution in cities, we only look at those with measurements,” he said. “This focuses our attention on big cities and the developed world. Initial attempts to measure air pollution from satellites have revealed more areas of the world with dense populations and high air pollution.”

Of the 1,622 cities covered in the WHO data, 510 are in two countries – the US and Canada. Just 16 are in Africa (half of these in relatively wealthy South Africa and Egypt). That’s 0.75% of the monitoring for 15% of the world’s population, an increasing number of whom live in high-risk cities. Latin America’s 604 million people are among the most heavily urbanised on earth. Their air is monitored in 109 cities. Across the Middle East, data is collected in just 24 cities.

Europe's Cities Are Suffering From Economic Segregation and Inequality Too - CityLab
Americans are well aware of the growing economic inequality playing out in major U.S. cities. So you can forgive them for assuming that things are always much better in European cities, with their larger welfare states and long histories of social democracy. Indeed, my own recent study of the connection between inequality and creativity juxtaposed America’s low-road path—which combines high levels of creativity with high levels of inequality—with the high-road path of Scandinavian and Northern European nations, where high levels of creative competitiveness go along with much lower levels of inequality.

But a new study of 13 leading European cities—London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Oslo, Vienna, Madrid, Milan, Athens, Budapest, Prague, Riga, Vilnius, and Tallinn—documents a substantial rise in socioeconomic inequality and economic segregation over the past decade or so. The study (part of a broader project on Socio-Economic Segregation in European Capital Cities) tracks socioeconomic inequality and segregation by key markets of socioeconomic class—including income, occupational status, and education—in these cities from 2001 to 2011.

The future of innovation belongs to the mega-city - The Washington Post
By 2030, according to the UN, there will be 41 mega-cities around the world with populations of greater than 10 million people. Not only will these mega-cities control the lion’s share of the world’s global economic and financial resources, they will also largely determine the future of innovation — and that could have a major impact on how we think about America’s hub-and-spoke model of innovation.

The Problem With Being Global | Newgeography.com
The fundamental challenge: the global city must accommodate two identities, a global and a local one. A great global city must serve its international role as well as its local economy and the needs of its local residents. A city must be more than a fancy theme park or a collection of elite headquarter towers. It needs a middle and working class, not just the global rich and their servants. It needs families and ordinary residents who may rarely leave town, not just globe-trotters. It needs to be true to itself and the people who, in the first place, created it.

The World's Most Influential Cities | Newgeography.com
In order to quantify cities’ global influence, we looked at eight factors: the amount of foreign direct investment they have attracted; the concentration of corporate headquarters; how many particular business niches they dominate; air connectivity (ease of travel to other global cities); strength of producer services; financial services; technology and media power; and racial diversity. (Click here for a more detailed description of our methodology.) We found those factors particularly important in identifying rising stars that, someday, might challenge the current hegemony of our two top-ranked global cities, London and New York.
